Dr. Weiss and his staff are top notch. I felt comfortable and welcomed upon arriving for my initial consultation. I explained to Dr. Weiss how tired and heavy my eyes felt and how I was ready to make a change. Dr. Weiss understood my issues and went into detail regarding the procedures to address my concerns and what could be done to correct my eyelid issues. I could not be happier with my decision. I would recommend Dr. Weiss to all of my family and friends.

I Almost reconsidered seeing Dr. Weiss due to the unfavorable review I read. But because my friend had a very favorable experience with the doctor and I saw the great results I decided to keep the appointment. He took a lot of time explaining procedure and I plan to schedule my eye lid lift with him! I only gave a 4 because I haven't had the procedure yet:0) I plan to review again after procedure.
